About the "How to Talk" Series

When I used to go to my kids’ preschool to be a “fruit and vegetable expert,” I’d bring a basket of produce and talk about the rainbow. 🌈 Preschoolers “get” colors. They love talking about colors and naming different foods. I talk about how each color is for a different part of the body. It’s a simplification, and it helps them understand that all the colors are important. As they get older, they use more and more specific information about fruits and vegetables.
